The Michigan Career Hub network is powered by WorkFountain technology which, since 2011, has provided thousands of business of all sizes with an efficient and effective way to recruit the talent they need to grow their businesses for both jobs and internships.
WorkFountain provides employers with the unprecedented ability to target specific recruitment needs while still providing exposure to a national pool of qualified candidates. It is best of both worlds – broad reach and targeted matches.
At the core of the WorkFountain platform is a patented, correlated matching system that goes way beyond superficial keyword matching and painful job descriptions. Instead, it relies on more than 100,000 unique job characteristics to instantly evaluate the interests of active candidates against unique criteria employers set. Candidates receive immediate, unbiased feedback on their application, and employers receive a ranked shortlist of top prospects instead of giant piles of generic resumes. The platform’s sophisticated matching design and algorithms help reduce both recruiting and candidate bias.
The WorkFountain platform was originally developed through a partnership between the U.S. Department of Labor, the New Economy Initiative, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and Detroit-based firm Digerati, a process engineering firm that leverages engineering and creativity to solve complex problems for businesses and communities.
